'I'd like to begin again,' says the protagonist of Ramón J. Goñi's new film, a sombre work which explores the idea of death as a new start. Starring Ashley Smith as a troubled, jaded beauty, On New Terms is based on Deborah Garrison's poem of the same name. The work - released in conjunction with our Death exhibition - eschews a literal narrative in order to allow viewers to project their own emotions and experiences onto the depicted scenes. Similarly, the piece also refuses to conform to a certain artistic category, combining everything from visual poetry to fashion film (thanks to some sleek A/W looks from 3.1 Philip Lim).
Speaking on the multifaceted film Goñi comments, 'Limbo is the keyword with this piece - artistic limbo, personal limbo, storyline limbo. Everything about the film is in between.'
